Bulgarian fighter Stanislav Nedkov is making the cut down to 185 pounds, and he'll make his middleweight debut in London. Nedkov will face off with Tom Watson at UFC on Fuel 7 on February 16th. The UFC UK twitter account announced the bout over the weekend:
Nedkov (11-0, 1 NC) initially lost his undefeated record at the hands of Thiago Silva, who submitted him in the third round of their UFC on Fuel 6 bout. However, Silva tested positive for marijuana and the bout was flipped to a no contest. Even though he technically remained undefeated at 205, he chose to make the drop anyway. He'll face off with Watson (15-5), who dropped his UFC debut via split decision to Brad Tavares at UFC on Fuel 5 in September.
